ERISA Claims and Long Term Disability Lawyers
Many of our clients need help with claims for long term disability insurance coverage. These insurance policies can be individually purchased from an insurance provider, or they can be part of a group plan offered by their employers (ERISA).
Unfortunately, denials of long term disability insurance are common. When it comes down to the wire, many insurance companies are unwilling to pay benefits to policy holders. They do all they can to deny valid claims, avoid sending payments, and confuse their clients with obscure insurance policy language.

Helping Jackson, Mississippi Veterans obtain their VA disability benefits

Veteran’s claims are denied for a variety of reasons. The Veterans Administration may not agree that you meet the definition for a physical or psychological disability.
